Rare Education Opportunities in Region 11  
PATH Intl. Mentor Training Course - April 17 and 18
The PATH Intl Mentor Training Course is only in Region 11 every couple of years and this time it can also be coupled with the opportunity to audit a Registered Instructor On-Site Workshop and Certification to maximize your ability to prepare Instructors in Training. The workshops can be taken separately or together one after the other.

The mentor training will assist you with preparing Instructors in Training as well as how to manage, communicate and mentor your staff, volunteers, board members and parents of riders. In addition, if you are a certified Instructor, auditing the Registered Instructor OSWC workshop is a great way to align with the newest Instructor practices and information in the industry as well as having the current view your instructors in Training will experience. Both courses count for CEU hours toward being in compliance with PATH Intl. certifications. These two courses are being held at Ivey Ranch, Oceanside, CA.
PATH Intl. Interactive Vaulting workshop - April 20-22
This is your chance to learn more about interactive vaulting and understand how this valuable discipline can add another dimension to your programs. Interactive vaulting is a great way to incorporate school groups, social interaction, enhance your camps in an effective and efficient manner. The first step to adding interactive vaulting to your program is to have a representative who is already a certified instructor attend the Interactive Vaulting Workshop. The workshop is fun, packed with information and a great avenue to consider for your program. This workshop will be held at Ivey Ranch, Oceanside, CA.
